The New Gravy Loaded Fries Swap Ketchup for Meat Drippings

McDonald’s Australia recently began offering Gravy Loaded Fries for those who are looking for an alternative to ketchup. Similar to the chocolate-covered fries served up at McDonald's locations in Japan, this new side dish puts a creative twist on one of the chain's most iconic menu items.

The new Gravy Loaded Fries consist of McDonald's French fries topped with a generous serving of gravy. As described on the chain's website: "Our new Gravy Loaded Fries are so delicious they’ll have you scraping the gravy off the carton and running back for more." Although the idea of gravy on fries may sound unusual, the combination is similar to the popular Canadian delicacy poutine, which involves adding gravy and cheese curds to French fries.

The new French fry combination ultimately demonstrates McDonald's willingness to begin experimenting with a dish that has remained relatively unchanged over the years.
